I've had issue where it was saying no more unicast flows left. I then turned the Rio box and other devices off, then turned back which allowed me to patch. Why was it not allowing more flows?

In most cases, Dante devices place four channels in a single flow. If you are manually patching a device, Dante will add four consecutive patches to a single flow (e.g. 1,2,3,4 then 5,6,7,8 then 9,10,11,12, etc.). Once a flow has been created, Dante will not delete the flow until all channels in the flow have been re-patched. So, if you were to patch as above, you would use three flows for 12 channels. But if you un-patched 2,3,4 and 6,7,8 and 10,11,12, you would still be using three flows, but for only three channels. If you continued to patch channels this way, you could run out of flows quickly By resetting the Dante device, you also allow it to re-organize the channels into fewer flows, and free up more flows for patching.
